I love mole but most all the authentic moles have 20 or more ingredients and some of them are hard to find and are not Vegan. Well here is a quick mole recipe you can make with just 11 ingredients.
Vegan Gourmand’s Quick Mole Sauce
16 ounce can of tomato sauce
2 Tbs chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 Tbs cocoa powder
2 tsp of creamy peanut butter
4 tsp brown sugar
1 Lg pinches of ground cinnamon
1 pinches of salt
1 cup water
In a med saucepan add tomato sauce, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin powder, coco powder, peanut butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt & water. Mix well with a whisk until all are combined.
Turn saucepan heat to medium.
Once mole is hot, simmer over med-low heat for 20-30 minutes or until the tomato sauce flavor is gone and the flavors have matured to that mole flavor. Stir frequently to keep from sticking.
Optional: If you would like a thicker sauce you can do the following: In a separate bowl, whisk together the corn starch and a little cold water and then add it to the saucepan, stir until it is fully incorporated into the mole.
Taste and add more salt if desired.
Remove from heat and it is ready to be used over enchiladas or any favorite dish.
